A Guide for the Dedicated Tarnished


In the depths of the harrowing Shadow of the Erdtree, an ancient and enigmatic being awaits: Midra, Lord of Frenzied Flame. This formidable boss, steeped in the lore of the Lands Between, presents a formidable challenge for even the most seasoned Tarnished. This guide will illuminate the path to finding and vanquishing Midra, granting you the spoils of your triumph.

Finding Midra

The journey to confront Midra begins in the treacherous Abyssal Woods. To reach this desolate realm, follow these steps:

  1. Reach the Woodland Trail Site of Grace in the Consecrated Snowfield.
  2. Head west towards the Abyssal Wood Site of Grace.
  3. Continue southwest until you glimpse a towering castle, the abode of Midra: Midra’s Manse.

Navigating Midra’s Manse

Traversing Midra’s Manse requires stealth and caution. Avoid the shadowy Aged Ones, whose mere gaze can drain your life force. If you dare to engage them, parry their staff attacks with precision.

  1. Enter Midra’s Manse through the front gate.
  2. Rest at the Site of Grace within the room.
  3. Locate the painting on the left wall and strike it to reveal a secret passage.
  4. Follow the passage and enter the first room on the left.
  5. Continue forward until you find a lever. Pull it to move bookshelves, revealing a ladder behind.
  6. Climb the ladder and proceed to the balcony area.
  7. Navigate past the frenzied flame-wielding enemy and climb the ladder behind him.
  8. Cross the beams to reach the room on the other end and rest at the Midra’s Library Site of Grace.
  9. Walk to the balcony and descend using the ladder on the right.
  10. Turn left in the room below to find the next passage.
  11. Locate the large portrait of Midra and strike it to uncover another secret passage.
  12. Climb the ladder at the end of the passage to reveal another lever. Pull it to move bookshelves on the opposite side of Midra’s Library.
  13. Jump down and proceed to the far end of the library to discover a new passage.
  14. Overcome the priests to reach the Second Floor Chamber Site of Grace.
  15. Enter Midra’s Boss Room to confront him.

Exploiting Midra’s Weaknesses

Midra’s formidable power is matched by his unique vulnerabilities:

  • Stagger Damage: Heavy weapons can inflict massive stagger damage on Midra.
  • Bleed: Midra is susceptible to bleed buildup, allowing you to chip away at his health significantly.
  • Aggro on Summons: Summoned spirits can distract Midra, providing you with ample opportunities to attack.
  • Physical Damage: Midra is most vulnerable to physical attacks.

Strategies for Defeating Midra

Conquering Midra requires patience and adaptability.

Phase 1:

  • Midra is relatively slow in phase 1. Wait for his attacks to finish before punishing him.
  • Use the Bloodhound Step ash of war to evade his delayed attacks more effectively.
  • Take advantage of his extended recovery animations to capitalize on his openings.

Phase 2:

  • As Midra’s health depletes, he will infuse his attacks with Flames of Frenzy. Exercise extra caution and avoid stepping into them.
  • Stay close to Midra to prevent him from casting devastating AoE attacks.
  • Stagger Midra during his phase transition to cancel his transformation.


Vanquishing Midra grants access to several valuable rewards:

  • Remembrance of the Lord of Frenzied Flames
  • Midra’s Flame of Frenzy Incantation
  • Midra’s Sword


Navigating the treacherous path to Midra’s lair and defeating this formidable boss is a testament to your unwavering resolve as a Tarnished. By embracing the strategies outlined in this guide, you can triumph over Midra, claiming the spoils of your victory and leaving an everlasting mark on the legend of the Lands Between.
